Samsung starts shipping out unlocked Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders earlier

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 was announced on August 25. At launch, the Korean tech giant said customers can expect the new phablet to be released on September 15.

Best microSD Cards For Samsung Galaxy Note 8

What’s the best microSD card to use with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8?

2017 is Samsung’s year to make up for the fiasco surrounding last year’s Note 7 —and the Galaxy Note 8 sure seems ready to impress!

If the 64GB of base internal storage on the Note 8 isn’t going to cut it (and you missed out on the pre-order deals that include a 128GB microSD card), you’ll want to invest in a quality microSD card  [Read More…]

Review: Griffin Survivor Glass tempered glass screen protector for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus

One of the best, and the most noticeable, features of the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus is the massive, 6.2-inch curved display. To my eyes, it’s the best display on the market and there’s no real competition for the crown. How Samsung managed to cram a screen that big into the phone is beyond amazing. But, […]

Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro hands-on: Simple improvements to one of the best fitness trackers

Don’t mess with a good thing.

Though it didn’t get as much fanfare as the Gear S2 and S3 in the last two years, the Gear Fit 2 was quietly one of the best all-around fitness trackers available since it was introduced in mid-2016. It wasn’t nearly as big as the smartwatches out there, yet it did many of the core smartwatch functions while also being a fully-featured fitness wearable.

Now for the end of 2017 Samsung  [Read More…]

It’s a product portfolio that was in need of updating.

Samsung is taking to IFA 2017 in Berlin to refresh its fitness wearable lineup, with an improved version of the Gear Fit 2, refreshed Gear IconX earbuds and an all-new Gear Sport smartwatch. The naming is not subtle: Gear Fit 2 Pro, Gear Sport, and Gear IconX 2018.

The new set of wearables is all about building on what Samsung has already done in this market, with  [Read More…]

Samsung Gear Sport hands-on: The Gear S2 refresh we all wanted

We really needed that ‘in between’ smartwatch again.

When Samsung released the Gear S3 Frontier and Classic, it made the watches substantially larger than the original Gear S2. And in doing so, the Gear S3 lineup kind of lost a lot of its appeal to those who wanted a fitness-oriented smartwatch rather than a general-purpose one. To remedy the situation, Samsung is releasing the Gear Sport: a smartwatch that has its eyes set on fitness and activity,  [Read More…]

Samsung adds Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, Gear IconX to its roster of wearables

Samsung on Wednesday introduced three new devices as part of its portfolio of wearable products.  The trio emphasize fitness features such as the ability to swim in salt water with the Gear Sport and Fit 2 Pro, but they do not include the Bixby voice assistant technology. Moreover, they fill in gaps between current products and […]

Samsung has new Gear to keep you Fit: MrMobile hands on

Samsung’s Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Icon X are all variations of designs we’ve seen before. The Gear Sport is an evolution of the Gear S3 Frontier, Samsung’s outdoor smartwatch I reviewed last year. I didn’t get as close a look at the Gear Fit2 or the Icon X earbuds – but maybe that’s just as well, given how much the newer models improve upon their forebears. With MIL-STD 810G durability and 5ATM water resistance the Gear Sport  [Read More…]

Unlock Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – Methods

We’ve waited for this ever since last year, when Samsung decided to discontinue the Galaxy Note 7, after the infamous battery issues it had to deal with. During a special event, the manufacturer unveiled the new Samsung Galaxy S8, their top notch phablet, which, as you might expect, won’t come for cheap. Considering this, a lot of […]
